  • Yes, you and your baby need all the nutrient you can get and drinking a WEIGHT LOSS shake is NOT the way to go.

  • As long as you're eating other foods, it should be OK. All slim fast is, is a low calorie meal replacement. It may make you feel full longer (not that long if you ask me) It has a ton of vitamins in it. Just make sure you're eating right foods along with it & you'll be fine.

  • Ask the Doctor. I would say no to either. Just snack on healthy foods. Eat several small meals and snacks a day. Don't skip meals for the drinks.

  • This site says it's OK as long as you're not usung them to diet. My grandma used to drink them too because she liked the taste, not because she was dieting.
